Class Experience

Welcome to the world of mythology and fantasy! This class teaches drawing principals and techniques for fantastic beasts and creatures based on where we find them (land, air, water etc).

From heroes and wizards to fantasy beasts and landscapes, students will learn to draw from suggested illustrations while also adding adding their own scenes and characteristics from their imaginations.  Students will use various art mediums such as graphite pencil, brush color markers, watercolor paints, acrylic and other exciting art mediums.

This class is open to students with some drawing experience and is a sequel to the Fall session. For the Winter session, we are offering 11 classes from January to April.

NOTE: for online classes. parents are responsible for all art materials. 


This class is offered both online and in person at the Kensington, Maryland Studio.
For online students, parents are responsible for art materials. Please see the Amazon link (under 'what to bring') for required art materials.
Online classes are held via Zoom video conferencing. The Zoom link and Password are emailed automatically around 30 minutes before the start of class. The class instructor will send out the 'art lesson' attachment the day before class. Please be sure to check your email and look for Young Masters Art Center as the sender. Please print the art lesson attachment in color. Students should attend class on a hard surface such as a table or desk with good room lighting. It's not advisable to take the class on the bed or floor. It's also best for students to attend class in a quiet house location that is not around the rest of the family with brothers and sisters. This will minimize interruptions for the student as well as the class and ensure good focus and attention.
